High Water | Snowy Mountains Solo Kayak Touring
Phil Roy, who describes himself as having 'half an adventurous spirit', embarks on a five-week solo kayak journey. Phil's intention is to challenge himself by paddling from the top of Talbingo Dam, onto Blowering Dam, down the Tumut River towards the Murrumbidgee River where he hopes to finish on the Murray River at Boundary Bend.
The journey was made all the more challenging with the threat of high waters due to the major flooding impacting Australia's eastern states (November 2022). Unfortunately, Phil was unable to complete what he had set out to accomplish. 'High Water' reminds us that whether things do or don't go to plan, it is simply 'having a go' and embracing the unknown that makes a journey an adventure. This is just the start of Phil's solo kayak adventure.
